Satellite Pro A100: Trojan warning message during the windows BIOS update
Trying to update my Bios through windows, my anti virus (f-secure) has a crush on decompressing the zip file a warning.
The warning pointed out that the folder contained a Trojan horse and that he had been cleared to protect my computer.
A warning from microsoft also said that access to these files had been blocked to protect your system.
Is it possible that this update, downloaded from Toshiba really contain malware or could there be another reason for this event?
Advice for help would be appreciated

Don't you panic! You BIOS are not affected by Trojans, Malware or viruses.
For the most part these BIOS files are not known for anti-virus applications and, consequently, anti virus software reports and notifies a virus.
Before you start the update of the BIOS, you must disable automatic virus protection!
I bought the PSAASE Satellite Pro A100-00H004GR and killed Win Vista. Now it's Windows XP Pro!
There is no Win XP Modem drivers on the Toshiba Page for this model, but I solved this problem by myself.
But now my Fn keys/keyboard shortcut does not work and I have no idea what to do. I've tried Hotkey utility of the other models, but it does not work.
No idea what to do now?
Full Support of driver for each model would be great...
Hi I found the usefulness of Toshiba Satellite Pro A100 PSAA3 shortcut keys.
It is not the same series, but try to install it. Maybe it will work!
Don t forget to also install the common Modules
I have a Satellite Pro A100-622 running MS Vista Home Basic Edition. I tried to use the card reader integrated with SD and Memory Stick card but cannot view the contents using Windows Explorer.
In both cases, the laptop recognizes the card and try to install new hardware. Unable to do so, he asks the drive of the software provided with the cards. Any software not provided with a card and I cannot find drivers to make the drive work.
The only application that I can find on the laptop that is associated with the player is a module of SD formatting, but I don't want to format the card (s) I want to just read the current content of them and add files.
You can download the drivers (and especially in your case for the sd-card-reader) here:
So the other point is the service of the SD card must be enabled in the start menu-> Control Panel (change to Classic view)-> Administration-> Services-> Chip card (at this point, you must activate the service and configure it to start at windows startup).
If you have any other questions, just ask. ;)
My wife received a laptop to use with his work. It is marked as a Satellite Pro A100 CS3. I tried to find the drivers for the WIFI (Win XP) but no Toshiba site does recognize the A100-CS3. Can someone help me out here. Thank you.
It is also called PSAACE, so work on that assumption, that of WLAN driver I need - Intel or Atheros?
I have a Satellite Pro A100
The machine will connect to internet on battery OK. However, if the power supply is connected it does not connect. Any ideas?
See you soon
How do you connect to the internet? With the WLan or cable LAN?
It s very unusual as the intermits connection when the power adapter is connected.
This question appears because you buy the laptop?
I'm unable to connect new Satellite Pro A100 to my youngest daughter to the internet.
I have a cable modem Netgear DG834 router that works perfectly with my desktop pc and laptops other two of my daughter.
I checked all the settings, but to no avail.
Can anyone suggest anything that could restore the balance of my household!
How have you tried to connect the laptop to the router?
A you connect using a LAN cable?
Are the firewall enabled?
Please publish more details!
I recently changed my OS from Vista to XP and I'm not able to find a driver for the ethernet controller in my Satellite Pro A100 PSAAPE.
Anyone know where I can get this driver from?
> I had already checked and cannot see the pilot
I don't believe that. I checked the Toshiba download page, and you can see two LAN drivers for your model laptop.
Install the latest version 9.2.24 and I think everything will be OK.
Hi, I just bought a laptop Satellite Pro A100. In general, I'm very happy with it, but I find it very slow especially at startup. It may take more than 5 minutes to be completely started.
Are there settings or settings that I can do to fix this?
I agree with the previous user of the forum. I often heard that Norton slows down the system quickly. Try to remove it and test it again.
I have a Satellite Pro A100-622
Part number: PSAAPE-00F005EN
Current OS: Vista Home Basic (OEM)
I would like to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional (less than £50 for the educational license). I run Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor and this indicates that all devices are compatible except for: Realtek High Definition Audio (with SRS). The adviser said "we have not the compatibility information about this device.
Someone at - it went down that road and found a driver windows 7 for the PA system or alternatively found the vista driver works OK?
My current version of the driver is realtek 22.214.171.12426.
See you soon
In my opinion that s is not a problem to get a newer driver. Most Vista drivers are normally also works on Windows 7 and if not, since the Realtek page you can download a newer version, the Windows 7 compatible driver too:
Check this box!
I downloaded the new BIOS - 1.60 for Satellite Pro L350 and it generates an error saying "This BIOS is not for your laptop".
Where can I get the new BIOS - 1.60 for * PSLD0E Satellite Pro L350-154-02601WS4 *? Thank you
Are you sure that you have a Satellite Pro L350 PSLD0E?
The series PSLD0E is a Satellite L350 (not Pro).
But the BIOS update, you can find the Toshiba site.
Yesterday, I upgraded my BIOS of 1.90 to 2.20 for VISTA... now, apparently, I downloaded the BIOS bad a100 to my A100 (PAAS...)
Now the computer turn on (no display) then a few seconds later stops offshore and turns on again (without interruption), I am under warranty (and the computer is in the store) but I was wondering what to do if Toshiba is not honor the warranty?
Thank you very much for your help!
I'm sorry to say, but it seems that you don't have the choice.
You can ask him authorized partner in your country for the help that I know, BIOS update errors are not covered by a warranty and you will have to pay a small fee for fixing.
In the worst cases, the motherboard must be replaced:(mais peut-être avez_vous une évasion chanceuse et seulement la puce ROM doit être flashée à nouveau)
some of the recommendations tried re: msconfig, but did not work. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a pro satellite a 100 psaape.
Whenever I reboot the signal turns off wireless.
I have to manually enable the wireless switch to get a signal to go online.
Is this normal or is at - it a way to get this automated so that it is always on.
This is normal since the needs of subssystem wireless initialized manually by the user. But I think it should probably be an option to automate the it.
I would like to check it out and give some feedback. On the other side, you should look for some options like 'turn on wireless to start windows' and so on...
